Full description

A beautifully presented, well-proportioned period country house situated in a peaceful rural location within 4 miles of the centre of Taunton, with spacious, extended family accommodation within formal mature gardens and grounds extending to about 3 Acres.

Howleigh House, a distinctive period house, is set on the lower slopes of the Blackdown Hills surrounded by unspoilt traditional farmland with many majestic trees, between the hamlets of Blagdon Hill and Angersleigh. Historically, the property was the principal farmhouse of the immediate area, extended in the Queen Anne period with a Regency style eastern wing added in 1870. Within the grounds is a gravelled courtyard, garden stores, loose boxes, former coach house, garaging for up to 8 vehicles, workshop, former cider house, original stone built animal pens and two paddocks.

The accommodation comprises reception hall, drawing room, dining room, inner hall, superb kitchen/breakfast/family room, larder, laundry room, boot room, garden room, master bedroom suite with ensuite bathroom and dressing room, bedroom 2 with ensuite shower room and dressing room, galleried landing, inner landing, 3 further bedrooms, 1 ensuite, family bathroom, separate WC and wine cellar.

The kitchen/breakfast/family room is designed and fitted by Warren Hughes, with burr fronted cabinets with granite surfaces, a four oven oil fired Aga set into the original fireplace and a central island with Miele hob and oven below. An oak floor extends to the dining area, with French doors to the West and the family area with triple aspect and large inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove.

The carriage drive leads into Howleigh House and proceeds to the West into the courtyard. The formal lawned gardens are bordered on the north by an original garden wall and well stocked borders, whilst the southern boundary includes a variety of established trees. An opening leads down to a more informal area of garden with a magnificent walnut tree amongst other ornamental trees. There is a small paddock to the East and a further paddock to the West with incredible views.

To the rear of the house is an Italian style terrace with raised rectangular pond with fountain and steps leading to the higher terrace set in front of the Garden Room with flagstone floors and views across the garden.
